New Balance MT/WT1010 Sneak Peek

New Balance MT1010 and WT1010 Trail Running Shoes

OK, so the MT110 and WT110 have been so popular that they really oughta run for office. New Balance engineered these vote-getters with fantastic trail performance and a good dose of style for their $85.00 MSRP.

For runners who want a more cushioned ride in the Minimus collection, New Balance is adding the new MT1010 and WT1010. These shoes bump the features up a notch while keeping weight down. The result is a lightweight trail trainer with a bit more cushion than its MT/WT110 running mate, helping you go the distance in comfort.

Launch Date

August 2012



What to Watch For

  • Low Drop: Like the MT/WT110, the 1010 sits on a platform with a 4mm offset.
  • Low Weight: The 1010 is expected to weigh almost exactly the same as the MT/WT110 – 7.7 oz for Men’s size 9 and 5.9 oz for Women’s size 8.
  • Premium Trail Platform: The 1010 sports Rock Stop protection and a Vibram outsole, but keeps weight in check by switching over to New Balance’s Revlite foam, which is 30% lighter than traditional foams but retains its responsiveness, cushioning and durability.
  • Rugged Upper: The synthetic mesh upper is ready to stand up to almost anything you’ll encounter on the trail, and is constructed with a gusseted tongue to keep out grit and debris.

    Will you have these up for presale when the time comes?

  • Matt

    Yes indeed, look for the shoes up on the site in mid July.

  • Andy

    Any update on release date? Still mid-July? Can’t wait that long!

  • Matt

    Thanks for the question, Andy. Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait just a bit longer…we’re looking at an arrival around mid-August, but the shoes should be on the site in just a few weeks for preorder.

  • Andy

    Thanks Matt. Was hoping to have them for a late July race (which I knew was overly optimistic) but at least it looks like they’ll be here for fall. Will look to pre-order in a few weeks.
